Greg Olsen to wrap up free-agent visits this week.

Greg Olsen's free-agent tour is wrapping up its final leg.

The veteran tight end's series of visits -- which included a stop in a FOX broadcast booth as part of XFL coverage Sunday -- continues Monday with a visit with the Redskins, and will then include a cross-country flight to Seattle to meet with the Seahawks, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of Olsen's plans. By the end of this week, Olsen expects to have arrived at a decision, Rapoport added.

Olsen's time with the Panthers came to an end in late January via a mutual parting of ways after nine seasons in Carolina. Originally a draft selection of the Bears out of Miami (Fla.), Olsen has caught 718 passes for 8,444 yards and 59 touchdowns in 13 professional seasons.

I was high on him coming out of college & was hoping that would be our pick.

We ended up taking a WR (Bobby M) in the 1st.

More than I thought he'd get. Figured it would be 5 plus a ton of incentives.
